'Squire Raymond was called to Swea City Thursday to prosecute one of the denizen's of that place for an attempt to do great bodily injury.

Sessions was recalling memories of Barnes Greeley Monday, the last surviving brother of the great Horace Greeley. Barnes lived near Jamestown and often came to town bare headed and bare footed. He was not a success as a farmer, but knew enough about it to make game of Horace'shook on the subject. Horace came out once a year to visit his brother. Barnes was not a very brilliant man and had as many odd notions as his brother. One of them was taking a half dozen tramps fall and keeping: them all in every winter.
